CARES Act Protections

The CARES Act provides additional protections for residents at properties with federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) financing such as:

  • Public housing authorities
  • Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC)-developed properties
  • Developments with federally-backed mortgages through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

These protections also apply to people who use Section 8 housing vouchers to pay their rent.

Under the CARES Act the federal government has implemented a moratorium on evictions for any residential property that receives federal housing funds, including both public housing and mixed income housing beginning March 27, 2020 and ending on June 30th, 2021. During the moratorium a landlord is prohibited from:

  1. making, or causing to be made, any filing with the court of jurisdiction to initiate a legal action to recover possession of a rental unit from the tenant for nonpayment of rent or other fees or charges; or
  2. charging fees, penalties, or other charges to the tenant related to such nonpayment of rent.

A landlord also:

  1. may not issue a notice to vacate until after June 30th, 2021 unless the moratorium period has been extended by the federal government; and
  2. must still provide the federally-required 30-day notice to vacate whenever the landlord begins eviction actions once the CARES Act moratorium expires.


Violations of the CARES Act will be reported to the appropriate federal agency for enforcement.
